2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Lexington, Kentucky
The Space

The home is small but charming at only 728 square feet. Referred to as a “shot-gun” house due to its long and narrow build, this simple architectural structure was brought to America by Haitian refugees in the early 19th century.

Although technically, it is a one bedroom house, there is a full-size solid wood futon with a Sealy posture-pedic mattress that sleeps very comfortably located in the back room. The bedroom has a king-size bed. This house can sleep between 2 to 4 people comfortably by way of the bed and futon. Both the bed and futon mattresses, box springs, and sleeping pillows are encapsulated by protective cases for personal hygiene and safety. All bed linens, including comforters, are laundered after each guest visit.

About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is up and coming, although it can appear intimidating to some. It is urban and can seem a bit rough around the edges. However, things are changing with the addition of the new Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) replacing the old historic Eastern State Mental Hospital across the street. As well, there are at least three of Lexington's new artisan breweries within a mile of the house; Blue Stallion, West Sixth, and Town Branch Distillery.
Getting around
LexTran is the public transit system of Lexington. There is a covered bus stop two blocks down the street from the house. A bus leaves every 30 minutes from this location to the transit center located downtown. Visit LexTran for details.
